Forums > Travel Yunnan > Any Recent Passport Renewal Experience?

At the time I mistakenly didn't get the limited passport and thought I could wait it out, and was unable to call my visa guy because my phone was locked up while I was in the consulate. After I got out I was told by him he needs my new passport info ASAP and can't wait till the last minute. So I'm still not sure about that but I do know that it will be free. (presuming what they said was accurate) The Chengdu airport and Chengdu in general (other than the hotel thing) was extremely chill and didn't need a health code when coming out or going in, however Kunming airport requires the green one twice to get in.

I went yesterday and processing was easy, but apparently the office of printing passports is closed because of covid now and they are not sure when I can get my new passport. There is a good chance I will need to use an emergency passport that is only good for one year while I wait for my new passport to arrive. My advice would be to either call (8628) 85583992 to contact the general consulate or email them at [email protected] for the most reliable information available. Furthermore, if you are looking for a place to stay the night when you go, expect most foreigner friendly hotels to turn you down. Even if you go to the local police station, get a document saying it is OK to stay there, and going back with the stamped document, having the police call and talk to them, they will still say no with a bunch of inaccurate excuses that conflict each other, leading to an immeasurable amount of frustration. However, Sandals Guesthouse, 拖板鞋客栈,about 3.5 KM from the consulate and quite cozy will be cool and reasonable, so go ahead and book there.

I think in coordnation with this story, GoKM should have a special 杨林肥酒 night at a nightspot of their choice. I think it could go well.....and end horribly.

your best bet would probably be to start from the qiaotou side and do the 26 bends in the beginning...it is a tough hike, but what would probably be best for your mum is to let her hop on a horse until you get to the top. From there it is pretty level and not too tough. Then depending on your pace, you could stay at the tea horse guesthouse which is the first one you will come across, or the halfway house, which is probably around 30-60 minutes from tea horse depending on your pace. both guesthouses have amazing scenery to be viewed from your hotel room

Also, big thanks to you Colin, as well as everyone else involved and who attended to make an event that wont be forgotten anytime soon. I would also like to send thanks to Foca Loca art studio for their time, and although the event being stopped by 'the man' cut our auction short, all paintings will be available for purchase at slice of heaven, with all proceeds going to Liping.

Furthermore, I hope that yesterdays festival is just the tip of the iceberg with these sort of art/music/charity events. If anyone has any ideas or any interest in volunteering to help plan these events in the future, send me an email at [email protected] and we can start planning to the next big event. Thanks Kunming for being awesome.

Yeah for real. After a thorough search for alternative sites to view from both China and abroad, it amazes me that for one, in Chinese webpages, the movie's title in both English and Chinese is not existant, and two, someone would go to so much work to make a documentary of this nature, only to make it so difficult to gain access to.

Patrick, how did you find the movie in the first place?

Lost Garden's kitchen has became a Saratrical masterpiece! Great tea just the way it should be made, combined with tangy and titilating specialties from the south of the US, South of the border, and beyond! Rooftop is Kunmings top place to catch some rays and chill out with a book or some buddies and booze. Look forward to menu expansion and much love to the mastermind chef in the Kitchen!

Revolutionary in the grand scheme of food options for health nuts and herbivores in Kunming. From some spicy fresh spring rolls to rockin' lentil curries, a great option for anyone who likes healthy and unique!

After somewhat of an 'As You Like' hiatus, caused by work and life in general, I was lucky enough to find some time for a latte and a mushroom and cream calzone at lunch today. The place has continued to improve in both the categories of taste and general quality. Those who haven't been, I would say it is in your best interest to make an effort to find the place and if you are in the Wenlinjie/wenhuaxiang area, you'll discover its right under your nose. Great place to chill, relax, and get away from the traffic, noise, and distractions that Kunming brings your way.
